, but not bomb making. the stockpile beyond that level will be diluted or converted so it cannot be used for weapons purposes. they will agree to nuclear inspections including daily visits to some facilities. in exchange, the u.s. agreed to provide $7 billion in sanctions relief. last night, president obama hailed the agreement as a step toward a world that is more secure. >> these are substantial limitations which will help prevent iran from building a nuclear weapon. simply put, they cut off iran's most likely paths to a bomb. meanwhile, this first step will create time and space over six months for more negotiations to fully address the comprehensive concerns about the iranian program. because of this agreement, iran cannot use negotiations as cover to advance its program. >> secretary of state, john kerry who flew to geneva praised the deal, admitting it's just a first step. >> the next phase, let me be clear, will be even more difficult and we need to be honest about it. it will also be more consequential. while we obviously have profound differences with iran, yet to be resolved, t

? or is the surrogate closer to the senator -- the father closer to the san than either will let us know? does it matter? or should we ignore the words of this man who's so close to the country's loudest, angriest voice of the right. david corn of mother jones magazine and he broke the story today on cruz sr. and back in september of last year, rafael cruz spoke to a tea party group on behalf of his son who was running for senator at the time. he made a claim about the president of the united states. watch him. >> we have our work cut out for us. we need to send barack obama back to chicago. i'd like to send him back to kenya, back to indonesia. >> according to the senior cruz, president obama is a marxist. let's watch this. >> we have to unmask this man. this is a man that seeks to destroy all concept of god. i tell you what. this is classical marxist philosophy. karl marx very clearly said it. marxism requires we destroy god because government must become god. >> senator cruz's office told mother jones quote, pastor cruz does not speak for the senator. but in fact he often does as a surrogate put out
the year 1843. democrats and other lovers of a functioning u.s. government were not pleased. >> i believe very deeply that the judiciary is too important to play partisan games with it. that's exactly what's going on here. >> going to hold nominations hostage without consideration of individual merit we will have drastic measures. >> drastic measures also known as the nuclear option, also known as a push to get nominees cleared with a simple 51-vote majority. democrats are reconsidering that measure because of the gop's unprecedented and historic intransigence on, well, everything but especially on presidential nominations. as "the new york times" reports, republican objections to miss millet had nothing to do with her political leanings. they wanted to refuse president obama any more appointments to appeals court. that's because the court oversees most agencies, health care, financial reform to the irs and epa. underscoring the importance of the d.c. circuit court, four of the nine supreme court justices served on it. but rather than than admit to their fear obama appointee might shift t

[ applause ] >> the presidential medal of freedom ceremony has just wrapped up at the white house. among the 16 recipients this year, oprah winfrey, loretta lynn, and the last democrat to occupy the oval office, former president bill clinton. given that last week president obama might have preferred to bestow on mr. clinton the medal of freedom of opinion. >> i'm grateful, bill, as well, for the advice and counsel you've offered me on and off the golf course. and most importantly for your life-saving work around the world. >> by all accounts, 42 and 44 are not close. advisers can see the two men don't particularly like each other, and their relationship is purely transactional. as reported in the book "double down," following a round of golf in 2011, designed to break the ice and formalize clinton's role in
us never negotiate out of fear but let us never fear to negotiate. i believe that. this diplomacy backed by the unprecedented sanctions we brought on iran, has brought us the progress that was achieved this weekend. for the first time in a decade, we've halted the progress on iran's nuclear program. key parts of the program will be rolled back. [ applause ] >> international inspectors will have unprecedented access to iran's nuke cheer related facilities. this will help iran from developing a nuclear weapon. we're going to continue our diplomacy with the goal of achieving a comprehensive solution that deals with the threat of iran's nuclear program once and for all. and if iran seizes this opportunity and chooses to join the global community, then we can begin to chip away at the mistrust that's existed for many, many years between our two nations. none of that is going to be easy, huge challenges remain. but we cannot close the door on diplomacy and not rule out peaceful solutions to the world's problems. we cannot commit ourselves to an endless cycle of conflict. tough talk and

by foot. now, the u.s., of course, is at the forefront of the international efforts. u.s. george washington is steaming towards the philippines. eighty aircraft on board, 5,000 personnel. it will get here on thursday. already 200 marines are on the ground assessing the needs and helping get some of that aid in. now, the death toll continues to be speculative. the president aquino gave an interview a short while ago in which he said he now expected it to top out around two and a half thousand. he said the 10,000 we had seen quoted was as he put it an emotional official in the immediate aftermath of the typhoon. but clearly with half a million people displaced, the needs here are urgent and very great. as of yet the aid is not getting in and the quantities needed andrea. >> the center of the distribution efforts, the typhoon stripped hospitals of sources they needed desperately to treat ill and urged. dr. nancy snyderman visited a struggling hospital in hard hit tacloban. >> we tried our best but these are difficult times. >> dr. francis continues to treat the people of tacloban in

"60 minutes" had all weekend to prepare for its big apology and clarification, and most importantly, explanation of how it put a dodgy eyewitness on the air with a now discredited story about the attacks on americans in benghazi, libya. but when viewers tuned in last night, they did get an apology, but that was about it. the legendary cbs news show, "60 minutes," is in damage control mode in a way it hasn't been in almost a decade. >> tonight, you'll hear for the first time from a security officer who witnessed the attack. >> on october 27th, it broadcast a report on benghazi, using a so-called eyewitness, suggesting the u.s. government could have sent backup to the besieged u.s. mission in benghazi, libya, during the attack that killed four americans last year. >> one guy saw me. he just shouted. i couldn't believe that he had seen me because it was so dark. he started walking towards me. >> and a
for joining us this hour. the state of illinois is a bright, bright, bright blue state. right? and every one of the previous six presidential elections going back to 1992, illinois voted handily for the democratic candidate for president. and last year's presidential election, president obama won in his home state of illinois by 17 points. and that does not mean there are no republican areas and no republican members of congress in illinois. there are plenty of conservative parts of the state, but state-wide, illinois is very blue. which makes it all the more amazing that illinois has a senator, of course, senators are elected state-wide, illinois has a senator who is a republican. senator mark kirk was elected to fill the seat that was once held by president obama. after the rod blagojevich scandal of the governor essentially trying to sell that seat, the scandal that ultimately put governor blagojevich in prison, republican mark kirk is the man who eventually got that seat. senator kirk is probably best known for the major health challenges he has survived since becoming a senator. senator

for the right reasons. >> you don't think we have a responsibility as a u.s. senator to do better than that in terms of offering a solution for what to do next? >> well, i -- i --. >> just simple, straight forward fact-based ah! >> dismantled piece by piece with every tool that they have. >> jim, bring down the crowd hammer. >> this will be a story of an epic collapse. >> fire in the hole! >> well, i -- i --. >> the full weight of the evil of obama care is going to end up being a wrecking ball so big not even miley cyrus would ride it. >> well, i -- i. >> i'm going to repeal the law of the land. is that clear? >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. i know all of the liberals in the community are all excited about the senate rules being changed when it comes to filibusters. i'm not as excited as maybe you are. i'll explain later on in this broadcast. i've got to start with health care because we are gaining momentum as the website continues to get better every day. i want to focus on this number if i may. that is 15%. apparently the conservatives are really con
is historian robert carro, author of the boo. great to see you. thank you for being with us on this important day. lets talk about that day and the decisions that were made, which you have analyzed so deeply in the passage of the power. the decision to go back to love field and have the swearing in of lbj. talk about that and what was motivating johnson and fateful phone calls, to bobby kennedy, which you write lbj said he thought was to console him but also to ask him for his blessing, really, for the swearing in and which kennedy took so badly. it really was part of the blood feud that was then to infect politics for years to come. >> johnson is in the hospital. he's just learned that president kennedy is dead. the secret service says we must get you back to the plane, take off immediately, get back to washington. we don't know if it's conspiracy. the safest place for you is in the white house. johnson says, no. i'm waiting for mrs. kennedy. they say she won't leave the hospital without her husband's body. johnson says i'll go to the plane and wait for her and the body there. i'm not taking
american troops to stay but president karzai is not so sure. richard engel is on the ground to tell us why. and big brother/big business. the new trend in health care that has employers paying attention to more than the bottom line. they're also watching your waistline. does it go too far? and giving directly. no organizations, no charity groups. what if we gave directly to the poor. there is a group doing it. and it's today's big idea. lots to get to, but we start with that ground breaking deal hammered out in geneva last night. iran will get initial relief from some sanctions. essentially billions of dollars in oil money that had been frozen in exchange, iran agrees to halt what is called high grade uranium enrichment. iran will not stop all uranium enrichment. and it cannot install centrifuges, those devices used to enrich uranium. again, this is all a temporary deal designed to provide a six month window to reach more comprehensive agreement. let's go live to london where john kerry arrived earlier today. first of all, what has been the reaction to this deal from around the world? >> w
. don't sell yourself short. thank you so much. the activist groups are wal-mart plans to use this to protest in support over big box store workers. 50 demonstrations are planned across the country. we will dig into a little more what these activists want. we will have an interview with the executive director of jobs with justice. the obama administration is less than 24 hours away from one of the biggest deadlines in the president's second term. the senior economic adviser of healthcare.gov ficker, he told the country that the vast majority of users would have a smooth experience on the enrollment by the end of november. that deadline is just about here. tomorrow is deadline day. will there be good headline or more headaches? the house budget committee joins us now. good morning to you. do you have insights and inside information as to what we can expect tomorrow? >> good morning to you. i don't have inside information, but the president had a teamworking on this almost nonstop and made assurances that the vast majority will access the website. let's hope that's the case. we
presidential library back in april. >> thanks for coming on. to help us dissect all things obama care, we're joined by megan mccartel. how are you? >> i'm fine, thanks. >> we'll get to elections but a lot of talk about navigators and new york times reporting some states like kentucky, they've been very helpful. luke russert reporting on republicans though trying to use this sort of grass roots outreach as a potential pit fall. how important is it to have something offline to help people in states learn about what they can do under this law? >> well, i think right now it's very important. if the website isn't performing as we expected, it probably wouldn't be as important. you would still want that, especially for seniors who aren't always the tech savviest people. the issue is that the republicans are pretty fair on is that not all of the navigators seem to have been trained as much as you might like. the new york times article had a kentucky navigator telling a woman who is reluctant to sign up for medicaid, you could just sign up and use it for catastrophic expenses and pay your doctors
voters are shrinking and the number of younger progressive voters are starting to dominate? you use redistricting to magnify the power of the more conservative whites to keep control of the congress. finally, you obstruct the power of the emerging new majority once elected to even run the government. actually, you do all three of those. welcome to the republican plan for holding power in this country long after they have receded into a minority of the population. gerrymandering and obstruction. an article chronicles all the tricks republicans are using. and a political analyst, let's start with voter suppression. ron, you and i have talked about it. it's rather shameless. it's under the tutelage of the rnc chair. they are basically saying let's make it really hard for older people to vote. let's make it really hard for black people and minorities to vote. let's make it harder for young people to vote. let's make it easier for white people who live in rural areas to vote. >> cynicism and politics have gone together for a long time. but the cynicism in this sort of an effort, and many
because they are so psyched that russia hates gays so much more than they used to. so the world congress of families is based in illinois. and mark kirk's home state. and apparently, if you're an interest group of some kind and your group would like to hold a meeting in one of the rooms at the u.s. capitol, you just call up one of your home state senators and ask if they will book the room for you. i didn't think i knew that it happened this way, but apparently, this is a very common practice. and it's the kind of thing that happens frequently enough that it's handled at the staff level as a relatively routine level. so, mark kirk's office got the call. the world congress of families, okay, that's a fairly anodyne sounding name. they called senator kirk's office. and through his office, they booked meeting space at the united states capitol for today. the meeting they were planning on holding in the capitol was specifically to praise how anti-gay russia has become. and to strategize for how to get that kind of russian-style anti-gay stuff happening over here. how to bring anti-gay polici
